Kari has been riding horses since she was 3 years old and always loved the times her parents would take her to the barn to spend time with them. When she was 8 years old and moved to Ohio from Tennessee her family could not take their horses with them. Finally, her freshman year of high school, she was able to show a friend's horse and did very well. She attended local shows and the Wayne County Fair but always wanted to learn more and become a better rider. She is thrilled to be at Liberty studying Business Administration in hope of facilitating her own equestrian center someday. Kari is excited for all of the opportunities she will be given and memories she will make on the equestrian team.
